“On The Edge”
“Many moons have come and gone, a few bits of equipment have changed and the never ending trek for learning continues.”
That’s my lastest quote by yours truely. If it means anything to you, feel free to use it.
Have you ever felt that you are so close, that you could taste it? Have you ever felt though that being “that close” gives you the sense that you can, still do, want and crave more? That’s how I feel and have felt for many months. This never ending thirst to learn and to expand, to tweek and to find my own way down the photography career path, as been nothing short of amazing. I have met and photographed some amazing people, animals, storms and landscapes, to only want to go back and do it all over again. Do it again but with a different purpose in mind. It’s called growing and growing puts me closer to “the edge”.
I realize it’s been awhile since you have heard from me but let me explain to you, who I am and why it’s been quiet. I am a creative form of perfectionist. Please don’t ask me the definition of what that means, as I couldn’t tell you. I can only show you by pointing out the last date of my blog was WAY TO LONG ago and the reason behind it.
The perfectionist in me wouldn’t allow my fingers to touch this keyboard until THEY felt whatever I was about to type next was worthy of typing. I believe it’s true that when we chose to develop, that we grow in spurts, we plateau, we grow again, just to find out that around every bend, there is much more to learn. I’m about to call this my 12 step program and accept the fact that with every step conquered, I’m just that much closer to…”the edge”. Not to say when I come to “the edge” will I jump off, no, it’s a matter of “being there”. Being there where all this learning, tweeking, developing and gaining an understanding will help give me, “the edge”. Some of you may find this overly confident to say, where others will simply get it. Possessing “the edge” sets us apart from the norm and that my friends is simply why I’ve been silent for so long.
I’m going to sign off for now but please do come back and check in often. My Galleries are starting to become more and more defined with my style and how I want my photography viewed. And if by chance you see something you like, leave me a comment on how it makes you feel. I would love to hear your feelings too. (You may also find me on FB at Caryn Hill Photography)
Until then….Keep Calm & Shoot On!
